There might be two reasons for this issue. Initially, the battery might be dead. In which case, you must replace it with a new one or charge it up in order to resume using the device. Secondly, the hard drive might be broken. This is a more serious issue and it requires the hard drive to be replaced with a new one.

My Camcorder is Sony video recorder TRV99E analogue type. There is no Hard Drive. The battery is not charging. It is completely dead. It has worked for nearly 16 yrs well. I am not sure whether there is some component failure due to aging.
